Hospice Africa is now working with health care partners on smaller projects in Ethiopia, Malawi, Cameroon and Nigeria.

Like all sub-Saharan African countries they have a huge need for palliative care. Hospice Africa is particularly receptive to providing small start-up grants which allows local initiators to make a beginning and develop a track record which then allows them to seek more long term funding elsewhere.

The International Programmes scheme based in Kampala, but funded by Hospice Africa, provides advice and on-the-spot assessments for new proposals. Recently visits have been made to Ethiopia, Senegal, Rwanda and Sierra Leone. Hospice Africa is supporting the training of palliative care initiators by providing scholarships for students on the diploma and degree programmes.
